I just had a match that was so fun that I decided to make a vanity thread.

Carry pants!!! At the end, I had to solo a 1-shot Challenger, full HP Caern and full HP T20 in a Hwk 12. My heart is still pounding.

I don't think I was aggressive enough at the beginning, and I benefited greatly from facing bad players. However, I was pretty proud of whittling down the T20 while playing hide & seek from the Caern. The ending should teach everyone to train repairs first in your heavy tanks!!!

If you didn't know, the power-to-weight ratio on the Hwk 12 is amazeballs!

I'm probably late to the party, but the AMX 13 90 at tier 9 is really good! It's much more mobile than it was at tier 8, and has great gun handling with the ability to mount a vertical stabilizer.

Who says the Sheridan isn't a pure scout? Here's LT-15.3 with honors on almost 10k of pure spotting damage. My whole team leaves the base on Malinovka--which is a good thing--but I can tell the other team is going to push the river. So, I just park my tank in a bush and go grab a beer.

It's funny how confused people get when they don't think they should be spotted because their 6th sense doesn't go off. The problem is, they never went unlit!

I only did 1 partial shot of damage with a late SPG kill. I don't think I was spotted once in the entire game.

I know what you mean @monjardin many metas ago, same map, encounter: I raced to the opposite side and hid in a bush, then the enemy (t8) team comes over and camps like a tier 1 game. Think I got 5K spotting that game, had them spotted the whole time too.

And go the dad reflexes.

Question for you then: In terms of "serious" LT lines, I only have the wz132 and the Luchs, I'll go to X on the wz line but hadn't anticipated going past the Luchs on the other. Is it worth going up the line?

FWIW I'm a green scrub, I enjoy LT's but I'm no specialist.

I’m not a LT specialist either. The Hwk 12 and AMX 13 90 replays just happened doing the 3x XP bonus. I just gave the Sheridan a spin while spamming tier 10’s with a platoon and happened to draw a vision map. I’ve mostly been grinding the Chinese heavies recently. 

I got the 13 90 back when it was desirable to have one in the tier 8 meta for organized play. The Ru 251 was one I picked up for scouting Object 260 missions and with the intent to get a Leo 1 before it became 100% obsolete. I don’t really want the tier 10 German LT. So, I eventually dropped the crew back down to the Hwk 12.

I’d probably sell my German lights if I didn’t want to keep the crew around for the occasional M41 90 GF game. However, that tank seems to have suffered a bit from the LT changes as opposed to the AMX 13 57 and Type 62. The recent T-44(-100) over buffs will probably kill it outright. Why drive a big paper tank when you can get better armor and gun on a quicker medium?

The only LT that ever seems to be used  in  CW is the T-100 because of the crazy camo. The Rhm. Pz. doesn’t do anything particularly useful that a more specialized tank wouldn’t do better. With that said, the Hwk 12 is incredibly mobile, has a decent gun/gun handling and 410 m view range at tier 8 is pretty amazing. 

I haven’t played the Chinese lights past the 59-16, and it’s terrible. The only point would be for something to do with a Type 64 crew because the Russian lights are just better in my opinion. 

In summary, if you want a viable tier 10 LT, then the Batchat 25t is still your best bet. If you want stress relief that withstand the corridor meta, the get a T49 with the derp. Otherwise, heavy tanks are where it’s at, and I wouldn’t bother with the German LT branch if you don’t have a desire to pub those tanks for fun.
